The mysterious Hasbro and Avalon Hill HeroQuest countdown began about 14 days prior to the September 22nd announcement. The only thing that the page contained was the HeroQuest logo and a timer that was ticking down to something. There was plenty of speculation that it was about a new game, with many little clues preceding this announcement via countdown clock.
You have to give the folks at Hasbro and Avalon Hill lots of credit for this one. The marketing stunt of the HeroQuest countdown clock has been incredibly successful in drumming up hype. When the clock finally hit zero, the news was out and everyone immediately started talking. And waiting in the wings was a brand new crowdfunding platform from Hasbro to happily take your money. All things should be announced like the HeroQuest countdown clock!
